Incremental innovations are insufficient in today’s fast-moving world, and biomedical device companies recognize the need to invest in more disruptive innovation if they are to protect and grow their businesses. Identifying and capturing the disruptive opportunities that arise at the interfaces between clinical procedures and research into medicine, biology, engineering and physics is hard for a company and often high risk. The purpose of the Institute for Medical Science & Technology (IMSaT) is to create a dedicated process, organisation and network that bind together researchers from across these disciplines with clinicians, health service providers, biomedical device companies and funders/investors, to identify and rapidly implement new devices.

Round Robin Experiment

Raman spectroscopy has already proved its effectiveness in many cases for medical diagnostics such as for cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infections. However, there are no standards in the different working groups, e.g. for sample preparation, implementation of the Raman experiments, spectra pre-treatment, data evaluation, etc.In a round robin experiment, the required groundwork will take place in order to define standardised Raman measurement methods, which will be fundamental for establishing Raman spectroscopy for clinical diagnostic procedures.
